Default What am I doing wrong ???

Maybe someone can tell me what my problem is . I take all my photos on my IPhone and %98 of the time I'm on the Green Screen I'm on my phone and that's how I download photos to GS. But of all the pics I try to post only maybe %20 will work. Should I zoom in or zoom out ? I know there's got to be a better way so that I can post more pics. Any advice would be appreciated .

Try using a dslr camera. Iphones and smartphones have a limited camera lens. They do fine for phone sharing, but I wouldn't try to blow up an image from one for a full page on a computer.

If you're ok with just the image from your phone you might try adjusting the image setting by editing it. Add dynamic range, contrast, adjust brightness. All those things. But I guess a smartphone picture is the same as any skilled trade, just get an app and let it do the work for you.

Thanks for the advice. But I guess what I'm wanting to know is why won't most of pics download to the green screen? Is it the size or what ?

Are you using Taptalk or trying to upload directly into the website?

When you go to upload a file, a window pops up. Scroll down to the bottom of it and there's a table with all the file types listing maximum file size, maximum width and maximum height. If you're having trouble uploading, there's a pretty good chance that your file exceeds one of those parameters.

Here's a picture of the table I'm talking about...

I have never had an issue uploading pics until today. Something to do with last night's update? Never have used Teptalk and don't care to.

Mine is the same way. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I email them to myself and save them to my photos and then post them. This works 100% of the time.

Easy way is to text them to yourself. Then download. Then upload using the downloaded file.

Text will auto size the file.

Negative. Not anymore. At least with my phone.

Everything is telling me I manually have to do it now.

I email the photos to myself and it gives the option to send actual size, large, medium, or small. Medium always seems to work. Resave once you receive the email and use that image.

If you screenshot your pictures it will be small size and shouldn’t have any issue uploading those screenshots of your actual pics

Crop them so they are resized and it'll fix it 95% of the time
